For Our Families

When you have people in your life that don’t understand every single step of the process, it makes it so refreshing to speak with those who do.”

— Katonya, Riverhead, NY

You are not alone.

Having a baby in the NICU is life-altering. But you don’t have to do it alone. Hand to Hold provides support for parents of premature babies, babies born with special healthcare needs, and those grieving a loss.

Our mission is to help families like yours during a NICU stay and through the years to come. As NICU parents ourselves, we know first-hand that the impact of the NICU can persist for many years. Our resources are designed to help you through every phase of your journey.

Hand to Hold’s resources for families include in-hospital programs, informative articles and blogs, podcasts, social networks, and our award-winning one-on-one peer mentoring program. All are designed with the emotional, physical, and social needs of the whole NICU family – dads, moms, siblings, grandparents, and their extended support network.
